Here is the route
It’s been a while since I did a 50 mile ride. Not since my tour in June. I thought about taking the 28 mile option, didn’t, and rued that decision many times during the extra 20 miles of hills and wind. In the end, like usual, I was glad I did it.
Well over a hundred riders showed for this popular club ride with it’s 18/29/52 mile options. There weren’t many there when I finished as the video shows but I do tend to stop a lot, usually to look at my map and turn around to get back on course.
The next local ride is Saturday, Sept, 6 with the New Bedford Bike group. Meet at Popes island early enough for a 10 AM start for a ride into and around the city.
